Okay, so I'm looking at crossing the Atlantic here in a few weeks.
I have a choice between a 14 hour layover in EWR, or a 6 hour layover.
It's on a weekday, from 6am to 9pm, or if I take the shorter option, from about 4pm to 9pm.
Turns out it's hard to get to anywhere from Alaska, on anything resembling a convenient time schedule!
If I were to take the longer layover, can you guys tell me some good stuff to do? How do I get from EWR to the Big Apple? Can I visit Ground Zero? The Empire State bldg.? What kind of budget are we looking at?
Or should I just save it for a different trip and take a shorter layover?
